Two Connecticut universities released their own survey data about the upcoming open Governor’s race, and each arrives at rather different conclusions. New Haven’s Quinnipiac University (8/16-21; 1,029 CT registered voters) sees Democratic nominee Ned Lamont opening up a substantial lead over Republican businessman Bob Stefanowski (46-33%). But, Fairfield’s Sacred Heart University (8/16-21; 502 CT likely voters), in a survey taken during the same period but with a smaller and more refined sampling universe, sees Stefanowski closing to only a 41-37% deficit. The Connecticut race is expected to be close, just as the last two Nutmeg State gubernatorial contests have been. Two-term Gov. Dan Malloy (D) is not seeking a third term.
